I have always had a love affair with cafe curtains. Having never actually had any, I guess it was an unrequited love. I knew from the moment we said yes to this house that I would hang some in my kitchen but it wasn't until the other day that it occurred to me to use them in my family room.
I've decided to make them in a white linen with a ruffle at the bottom of a contrasting material and now the only hard decision left to be made is inside mount or outside? I'm drawn to the inside but I already have some rods that I think might work if I go outside mount. Since that saves me $45 per window x 3, it is something to consider. Always keeping the budget in mind, you know! Speaking of budgets...we already had our first house repair! We had a roof leak that was letting in water on our front porch and which was keeping me from starting my big front porch makeover. Unacceptable, right? Yay for old houses, right? I'm pretty sure, with that repair, we just scratched the surface!
